RE: A little more respect please.
It's funny you mention this Phil....I wonder if it is something in the air? I participate in several online forums that range from hobby type stuff such as flightsimming to real world professional forums and all seem to have been experiencing a hightened level of flaming lately. I think that there must be something about internet forums that brings the worst out in some people....or maybe somehow the high price of gas is causing people to take their frustrations out through their keyboards....I dunno.
With that said, I actually think that Flightsim.com has been affected the least by this phenomenon. At least around here, most people use gloves, but over at places like AVSIM it's gotten down right ugly. It has truly gotten ridiculous and why I stopped even reading the threads there let alone post anything.
I hope that Flightsim doesn't get into that sad state as well. Hopefully, it is just a phase.
